Introducing...A Dog and Me!


Hey guys! Today, I'm going to share something cool! Back when I was 5, I started writing a book. It's not really a story, but instead it's just writing about my life with Build a Bears. So, I guess it's almost like a blog! This inspired my writings, and I wrote it back when I only had one Build a Bear. I can't wait to share little snippets of this with you guys! 

Note: Since I want to keep this as similar to the original as possible, I'm only going to change spelling and slight grammar. I might add notes for understanding, since this was written by my five year old self. I have definitely improved since then trust me!


Here's the book, surprisingly it's stayed in good condition all these years. It's currently at 30 pages, just 70 shy of my original goal when I was five. I titled the book A Dog and Me. On the front page, I have the title, a sticky note with all my Build a Bears birthdays (Brownie-Swirl), the illustrator(my dad, that didn't work out), and the author. Then, I made a page of acknowledgements. 

To my mom, my dad, and way too many stuffed animals.*

*Not the actual words in the book.

Then, the book begins! On the first page, I began chapter one.(Or, with my five year old spelling, apparently it was "Capter one)

Chapter one
How Brownie Got Her Name

Really, Brownie was named by my mom. And her name is Sugar Brownie, but I just call her that.
And sometimes, I call her Sugar, but mostly I call her Brownie. We read books together, but I am writing a book right now and I am only five. And I am writing a one hundred page book.

Yeah, that's actually the whole first page.


The actual first page.
Wow, my handwriting was bad back then. Trust me it's improved much since then.

A page from my blogging notebook
My recent handwriting. It's much better than when I was five, wouldn't you say?

Did I just turn this post into a post about handwriting? OK, I think this is good for an introduction to A Dog and Me. I can't wait to share more of this book! Look forward to the rest of this series!

Do you like to find old writings?

Out With the Old, In With the New - Changes for the Upcoming Year

Hello all! I realized that it's been a while since I've posted on my blogs. So I have a few updates I'd like to share for this blog and my other blog, World of AG Dolls. I normally don't like to read long apology/update posts,  so I'm going to add a few pictures in here.
So, it's been way to long since I've posted anything. When I think about this, I really don't have a fair excuse. The only thing I have is the fact that my mom has to approve my posts before I post them. (She's just overprotective, I get it, it just seems unnecessary to me) She hasn't been very good at that recently, so I tell myself, "If she's not going to approve my posts, why do I bother making them?" This just makes it worse. If I don't even write a post, I can't blame my mom for not approving them.

I've been thinking a lot recently. My interests have changed since I started these blogs. My American Girl blog was started because I loved American Gi…

Easter Pranks - An April Fools/Easter Photostory Mashup

Happy Easter and April Fools Day! If you don't celebrate Easter, then just happy April Fools Day! Cali wanted to write her version of the day, so here we go! And BAB Takeover week will start tomorrow, since today is a holiday.
Take it away miss Cali!

We plotted together. We had the perfect plan, and it had to be perfect.

"Alright, are we ready?" I whispered.

"Yeah, I think so. Go ahead Cherry," Cloud replied.

"OK," Cherry whispered. Then she added in a louder voice, "Goldie! Time for a walk!"

Goldie came racing in. "Walk?" she asked, panting.

"Walk?" I asked. "It's not time for a walk!"

"What?" Goldie asked. "April fools!" we all shouted in unison. "This was an April Fools prank?" Goldie asked in confusion. "Yep!" Cloud replied. "That wasn't very funny. Actually, it was kind of dumb," Goldie shrugged as she left.

"Excuse me?" Treasure appeared …

Saturdays with the Stones - March 2018

Hey guys! Welcome to the first BAB Takeover Week. Today is Saturdays with the Stones, which means we, the Stones, can make whatever we want! We decided to do an introductory photoshoot(even though we've already had lots of posts featuring us), explainations about us, and our thoughts on each other, We're also going to show you guys our own area in the BAB area! Pumpkin was nice enough to take our pictures, since she likes photography. We can't wait for you to learn all about us!


Hi! It's Cali! Mommy said that I could show all of you our part of the BAB area! We're so lucky to get our own space. 

So we get this place on top of purple thing all to ourselves.

As you can see, most of the animals have to live between purple thing and Diamond's nightstand.

The rest hang out in the hammock.

Directly on top of purple thing, we have our bed from BABF that Amythest bought when the quads were born. It can suprisingly fit us all.

Then, we put a basket filled with all of o…
